In 2006, NITech and UTM concluded an academic exchange agreement, and have been promoting joint research as well as faculty and student exchanges, through various exchange programs of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), "Sakura Science Exchange Program" of Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), and participation in Malaysia-Japan International Institute of Technology (MJIIT) consortium, etc.
In FY2022, "Development of Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) Treatment System for Sustainable Energy Production and Resource Recovery based on Material Innovation" applied by Associate Professor Naoko Yoshida of NITech, as the principal investigator in Japan, was selected on Science and Technology Research Partnership for Sustainable Development (SATREPS) by JST and JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency), with Vice-Chancellor Prof. Datuk Ts. Dr. Ahmad Fauzi Ismail of UTM as the principal investigator in Malaysia.
It was a courtesy visit that also served as one-week research meetings as the collaborative research officially began in FY2023. After the introduction of each university, there was an exchange of views about international collaborations, especially through SATREPS.
In the future, it is expected that this visit will deepen exchanges between the two universities more.
